Antitrust Language Desk

Multilingual antitrust law skills

(i) Background: AGON PARTNERS advises and represents clients from all over the world. It is therefore imperative that language does not pose an obstacle. Antitrust law documents have to be made available in different languages and must be of the highest quality.

Antitrust Translation Service

Translations of the highest quality

(i) Background: When it comes to mergers or investigation proceedings which have been instigated by the Competition Commission or by the courts, the use of different languages poses great challenges for companies. Where documents, information and data are not precisely translated, then misunderstandings may occur. This can lead to misunderstandings and disadvantages.

(ii) Commitment: Thanks to the support from the Antitrust Language Desk, AGON PARTNERS has become specialized in the translation of legal documents. Contracts, corporate statements, opinions, leniency applications or merger filings are prepared in a proficient, precise and accurate manner, staying both faithful to the text while conveying the spirit of the original, in French, German, Spanish and English.

Lawsuit funding

Advising on funding in antitrust law suits

(i) Background: Lawsuits often fail because organizations are unable to cover the costs for ongoing proceedings and legal representation.

(ii) Commitment: AGON PARTNERS counsels and supports your company with a view to third-party financing of antitrust proceedings.

Talent awards

Promotion of academic work
